are going to the secretary-general of the united nations and they will present this formal application for membership. mahmoud abbas, the palestinian leader, will speak to the general assembly and no doubt get huge applause because the large share of the membership of the u.n. is fully behind this formal statehood bid. however, a u.s. veto awaits in the security council and even yesterday we saw permanent member of the united kingdom express high doubts about this palestinian statehood bid. >> there has been much speculation about what will happen here this week. let's be clear about one fact. no resolution can, on its own, substitute for the political will necessary to bring peace. peace will only come when palestinians and israelis sit down and talk to each other, make compromises, build trust and agree. so, our role must be to support this. to defeat those who embrace violence, to stop the growth of settlements and to support palestinians and israelis alike to make peace. >> there are so many angles to this story. i mean, some credit abbas and the palestinians with a great strategic move, galvanizing efforts and ramping everything up to prompt maybe peace talks and get a tim
